How to Start a Riot : Worklight Theatre

"Theatre so spell-binding yet brutally honest and brave that it actually gave me goosebumps"

Why were some parts of the UK set alight in 2011, whilst many others were left untouched? Who is present at a riot? If the actions are 'mindless', what's in the mind? Three performers use text and torchlight and to unpick the presumed causes of civil unrest.

Based on the work of leading crowd and social psychologists Professor Stephen Reicher, Dr. Clifford Stott,

How to Start a Riot seeks answers to questions ignored in the post-riot political rhetoric - rhetoric which has remained remarkably similar for centuries.

This debut show from Exeter-based theatre company Worklight opened to critical acclaim at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012, and brings a unique combination of stunning visuals and crowd psychology to theatres nationwide in 2013.

Age recommendation: 14+
